Why Design Now?: Solar rechargeable battery lanterns

Why? In most rural areas of the developing world, people rely on fuels such as kerosene that are dangerous and pose serious health problems.

It is also a service-oriented solution for rural electrification: villagers rent these portable, rechargeable lanterns from central solar charging stations.
